It was love. She's sure of that.Forced to rethink her past, to revisit everything that happened, Vanessa has to redefine the great love story of her life – her great sexual awakening – as rape. Now she must deal with the possibility that she might be a victim, and just one of many.Nuanced, uncomfortable, bold and powerful, My Dark Vanessa goes straight to the heart of some of the most complex issues of our age.‘‘A hard story to read and a harder one to put down … a package of dynamite’ Stephen King‘Compulsive.
